Sara Choudhrey utilises her knowledge of multimedia and digital technologies with her research interests in Islamic art to create and develop digital Islamic art. Sara’s practice-based approach to research re-informs her experimental process to art-making, leading to new ways of expressing and communicating theoretical and conceptual themes surrounding culture and identity; pushing the boundaries in art as an analogy of pushing cultural boundaries.
Sara uses a process in which traditional pattern-making is combined with digital techniques to apply floral and geometric patterns (such as Arabesque/Islimi and Islamic geometric patterns) to a variety of media including light-art, sculptures and installations. Sara explores a further element of digital by incorporating sensors and user-enabled behaviours in her work to produce engaging interactive installations.
Sara is currently completing her PhD on the topic of Digital Islamic Art in England, UK.
